Read what people say about PrepWorks
"My successful Oxbridge application can be largely attributed to the help and guidance given by PrepWorks. The personal statement feedback and ample interview preparation I received gave me the confidence that I needed to make a strong Oxbridge application. Tamara and her team of tutors were attentive, knowledgeable and strived towards one goal only: to get me into my dream university. I would highly recommend them to anyone who intends to make their application a successful one."
"Tamara and the tutors from PrepWorks have helped me tremendously in my university application. Not only did they help me decide whether if I should apply to the UK or US as well as which course I should take, they have also guided me through personal statement feedback and interview preparation. Throughout this, I have learned a lot of new skills and gained confidence which contributed to my successful Oxford application."
"I came to PrepWorks looking for training for my Oxford interview. I was surprised at how individualised and personal the classes were. I was half-expecting classroom style teaching but it was completely one-on-one. I had a number of sessions with an Oxbridge graduate where he went through several mock interview questions. He taught me how to approach interview questions, and having sessions with him trained me to be more calm during the actual interview. By the end of the sessions, I had almost mastered the thought process and thinking skills needed to ace an Oxford interview. I eventually received an offer, and I think PrepWorks contributed a lot to that. I would highly recommend PrepWorks to anyone who wants to maximise their chances of getting into their dream university."
"From advice on choosing colleges to entrance exam practice and essay feedback, PrepWorks has been a massive help throughout my US and UK university applications. I had very engaging sessions with my tutors Michelle, Nick, Aidan and Leon, who were all highly qualified. Most importantly, I truly felt that all my tutors and Tamara genuinely cared about my application and wanted me to succeed."
"I am grateful to the tutors at PrepWorks for all their help in guiding me through the Cambridge admissions process. From the very beginning, they handled my application with great care by taking the time to understand both my academic and personal needs. I thoroughly enjoyed the tailored sessions that effectively targeted specific aspects of my application. In particular, the sessions on preparing for the admissions assessments were my favourite. These sessions went beyond developing exam skills and techniques: they satiated my academic curiosity, provided a welcome challenge, and allowed me to expand the parameters of my knowledge beyond familiar boundaries. It is thanks to the invaluable guidance of the tutors at PrepWorks that I received a successful outcome and strengthened my passion for my subject."
"PrepWorks definitely helped me a lot in my university applications. Having the opportunity to speak to professionals helped me to decide on which degree I wanted to pursue at university, as they were able to clear up the doubts that I had. Writing personal statements is a daunting task, so it was very helpful to have someone who was experienced and knowledgeable read through my personal statement drafts and offer advice and suggestions that helped me to improve and refine it. I am also especially grateful to Ms Tamara who was very patient, supportive and understanding throughout the whole application process. I would definitely recommend PrepWorks to someone who is going through university applications as it is not an easy process, and PrepWorks approaches it in a systematic way that tailors to your specific needs, which would most probably lead to a successful outcome."
"I signed up with PrepWorks after receiving interview offers from Imperial College London and King's College London for Medicine. They were helpful in matching me with tutors who knew the field well. Dr Victoria was very experienced and through our one-on-one Skype and face to face sessions, she went through possible questions that could come up in the interview. I liked how she was very straightforward about what I was doing well and what I wasn’t, as that helped me improve quickly. Amul was another tutor I was matched with. He was a medical student at Imperial so had gone through the interview process himself. He conducted various mock interviews with me, told me exactly what I could expect on the day of my interview, and also showed me around the Imperial campus.
Overall my confidence greatly increased after my sessions with them, and I ended up getting offers from both universities."
"My experience with PrepWorks has been nothing short of excellent. Tamara and Bianca 's guidance helped me from narrowing down university choices, crafting a quality personal statement to showing me the ropes of the LNAT. Needless to say, I would strongly recommend their services for a sound application that will get you to a top university in the UK."
"When it comes to learning how to write UCAS personal statement, PrepWorks is skilful, humble, passionate, teaching from personal experience, and excited to show you the way. What they teaches you will help you improve your application, not just during the course, but beyond."
"PrepWorks has been with me for every step of my university application journey, having provided invaluable feedback for my personal statement, connected me with tutors like Leong Khim and Chern Juin who guided me through the notorious Oxbridge interview process, and facilitated discussions with people who gave me insight into my chosen course. I am extremely thankful for the support I have received from Tamara and her team, which I believe greatly strengthened my Cambridge application and led to its success. My Oxbridge application experience with PrepWorks has left me with not only an offer, but with skills that will continue to help me in my further studies."
"When I first had to write my personal statement, everything was so unknown to me, having to efficiently express my future in words. I never expected to see or even be able to attend a class that's specifically for personal statements and interviews directed towards university applications. I was glad I took this lesson, it helped polish my English writing in the personal statements and the step-by-step guide they provide for starting up my personal statements was definitely helpful. But most importantly, this class allowed me to be confident in my personal statements, having a sense of security knowing I've done well for my personal statements. I'd like to thank Mrs Tamara for all the help she provided me. Despite she was extremely busy with a handful of students, she still managed to provide me with ample support."
"The consultants at PrepWorks were extremely helpful in guiding me throughout my university application process. They are very dedicated, experienced and a joy to work with. I was clueless on how to write my personal statement but with multiple sessions, I managed to write one that got me into the university of my dreams."
"PrepWorks has aided me so much in my goal to apply for UK universities, which has been successful in my opinion. They provide hand-picked tutors who are experts in their field. For me, who was applying to Oxford and UCL for the PPE course, they had picked past Oxbridge students who had first-hand experience to thoroughly guide me through the TSA, which was an Oxford entrance test, and my personal statement. I found their support extremely helpful especially with my personal statement, as the tutors gave me much insight on how an admissions tutor would be looking at my personal statement, and as the personal statement is a key part in determining a student’s place, their help was particularly significant. With their guidance, I had received an offer from UCL for one of the most competitive courses in the UK, Politics Philosophy and Economics (PPE)."
"Before getting help from PrepWorks, I was struggling with choosing a career path. PrepWorks helped arrange career path exploration for me, which ultimately helped me to decide on pursuing Architecture. I then got helpful guidance while writing my personal statement and got to know more about the Architecture career path. Overall, considering I didn’t spend a lot of time with PrepWorks, their service helped me a lot, I even managed to get a conditional offer from my top choice university."
"From my experience with PrepWorks I can say that their services are undeniably useful. When I went to PrepWorks it was because of my lack of experience and confidence for my medical school interview, I was unable to answer the questions that would be thrown at me, due to me not knowing what the questions really wanted. However after just a few sessions, these issues were absent and I was able to pass my interview with ease. This was almost entirely because of how experienced, informative and cooperative the people at PrepWorks are, allowing me to easily and comfortably get used to how my interview would be structured."
"I decided to consult PrepWorks after a good experience from Mr Bela’s UCAT workshop. I was hoping for some guidance on interviews as I was about to go for three interviews for medical universities in the UK. I was worried because I haven’t gone through any mock interviews, nor do I have the knowledge about what would UK universities prefer in their applicants.
I was able to consult Ms Shireen, who is an experienced advisor. She first asked me to do a mock interview, and after that she was able to pinpoint all my weaknesses, even the ones that would usually go unnoticed. She was very observant and provided good recommendations to improve on each aspect besides pointing them out in a constructive manner. She was also very helpful in answering all my questions. At the end of the session, I was very satisfied with the whole experience and I had learnt so much from the short session.
I tried my best in applying all her tips and everything I learnt from the session during my actual interviews. I believe that the session truly helped me because I ended up getting all three offers from Queen Mary University of London, Cardiff University and Leicester University after the interview. Ms Shireen’s insight was truly invaluable, and I would most definitely recommend students who plan on undergoing important interviews to go for a consultation with her."
"I engaged PrepWork’s services for US and UK university admissions, and the team supported me every step of the way. Qin En developed my profile and helped redraft my essays several times, while Tamara proactively guided me through the UK personal statement. Working with them was one of the best decisions I made in the college application process!"
"PrepWorks has helped me tailored my personal statement in a way that I would not have otherwise been able to do so. They offer realistic corrections to all the small details in your personal statement, ensuring that there is a flow. The experienced advice from the consultants made the entire university application process very much less overwhelming!"
"The help and guidance I received from PrepWorks played an key factor in my UCAS application to various universities. Their university admissions package ensured I was completely prepared and fully equipped for the admissions process including personal statement, interviews and the like. I could not have asked for better help than the assistance they gave me. The tips and advice given to me has played a major role in helping me reach the point I am at now and am incredibly grateful for the advice given to me from PrepWorks."
"Applying to university is not an easy task. Writing a personal statement has to be one of the most daunting things in sixth form. PrepWorks really helped me to gather my thoughts and put pen to paper to ensure I write an outstanding, yet unique, personal statement. I am happy and grateful I chose PrepWorks."
"After my AS exams, I was struggling to cope up with the syllabuses. But thanks to Tamara for providing me with sources who coached me and I was gradually able to improve my grades. Eventually, I was able to achieve the grades that were required for me to qualify into one of the top universities in the world. With patience and enthusiasm, they have certainly brought out the best in me."
"When it came to university applications, I was confused about which course to pursue as I had several fields of interest. After my consultation session with Tamara, she guided me on the process of choosing a course, along with personal statement advice. She arranged meetings with experienced tutors in different fields which allowed me to learn more about each course. Through this, I was able to narrow down my undergraduate course.
Writing personal statements can be challenging from the content to the word limit. With Tamara's guidance, I was able to perfect my personal statement which got me offers from all my universities."
"I am grateful to PrepWorks for their help in strengthening my application. Many thanks to my tutors Kylie and Aidan in their guidance of walking me through the process of crafting a solid personal statement as well as through the numerous tuitions which have helped hone my ability to think critically under pressure."
"In 2019, I was in the midst of applying for medical school in the UK. I had been offered interview opportunities at three different universities. Before I attended Prepworks, I was struggling to learn how to prepare for it.
PrepWorks was extremely helpful in preparing me for my medical school interviews. Before attending PrepWorks and receiving help from Dr Victoria, I was not very confident in my answers and had little to no experience on how the interview would be conducted. After just a few sessions, my interview skills were exponentially enhanced. I learned what kind of questions they could ask and specific buzzwords that would score me extra points. She also taught me how to handle any curveball questions. She was also open to answering any questions I had outside the sessions, which was very helpful as well.
I would recommend Prepworks’ services to anyone who needs help preparing for university interviews. It definitely gave me the ability and confidence to ace my interviews and get me accepted into a top medical university in the UK."
"Applying to the US can be very daunting as it involves writing multiple personal essays. Fortunately, PrepWorks was there to help me navigate this gargantuan task. My tutor challenged me to reflect intrinsically, which led to a deeper understanding of my motivations, goals, & identity. I was then able to craft thoughtful essays which I refined with the feedback I received. Overall, this translated into applications that offered an authentic glimpse of who I am. Thank you to Tamara and the PrepWorks team for their guidance and support throughout the application process!"
"I am thankful to PrepWorks for providing invaluable support through every step of the vigorous Cambridge admissions process. Tamara and her experienced team were considerate and encouraging while providing constructive and targeted feedback. My tutor challenged me to go beyond what I knew in all of our sessions, which brought a new perspective to my learning and helped me gain confidence in speaking about my subject. This not only prepared me for my admissions assessments and interviews, but also reinforced my academic passion."
"By connecting me with tutors like Pheng Chew and Jesryna Patel who are Cambridge and Oxford graduates respectively, PrepWorks truly went the extra mile. Not only did the individualised sessions play a significant role in helping me achieve my offers, the skills I acquired are some that I will continue to take with me during my time at university. The session regarding my personal statement gave extremely sound advice while the LNAT classes resulted in my score improving significantly. Highly recommended!!"
"Tamara and Celine from PrepWorks were instrumental in my achieving an offer from my first choice university. Tamara’s insight and guidance prior to beginning my application process was incredibly helpful in helping me arrive at a decision as to which course to pursue, while Celine’s patience and expert guidance through the personal statement writing and interview preparation greatly helped to improve my critical thinking and articulation of my answers, which resulted in my successful interview for my first choice university. Overall, I am happy I engaged PrepWorks for university application guidance and would highly recommend it to anyone looking to achieve an offer from their dream university."
"PrepWorks has helped me tremendously with my application. They first ensured I was confident on which university course I wanted to apply to. After that they set up a research program with professionals from my course, who helped me write a joint research paper on a topic of my interest. Moreover, I was advised by Tamara to enter a few essay competitions (which I managed to win) and this made my personal statement more robust and unique."
"The college application process can be very stressful, especially when you have many different ideas to communicate in multiple essays. PrepWorks helped me channel these ideas in the most effective ways by guiding me in important details that admission officers look for. I highly recommend having classes with one of the tutors if you are looking for preparations for UK interviews. I learned a lot about the types of questions usually asked and extra technical knowledge built upon my Physics knowledge. Overall, PrepWorks made me the best version of myself to show to my dream schools' admission officers."
"PrepWorks has helped me tremendously with my university applications through their introductory classes as well as tutoring programmes. Tamara helped me refine my personal statement after I had finished my first draft and was extremely helpful in giving me advice on what to change. She also put me in touch with tutors who are had studied Law, Politics and Philosophy to give me an insight on what I would be studying and how to fully immerse myself in the university experience when studying Law and Politics. Aside from my applications, Yu Han has also tutored me in Economics, by creating personalised lessons, which has helped me achieve the grades required to apply to the universities Tamara had suggested. I was able to secure offers from top universities for a Law and Politics LLB and will be attending Cardiff University in September!"
"PrepWorks has been really helpful especially during the personal statement writing process. Having struggled understanding what to include in my personal statement, Tamara and her team gave me their full support in ensuring I submit my best application by constantly guiding and giving valuable professional feedback in narrowing and structuring my personal statement. I am very thankful to PrepWorks, keep up the good work!!"
"Boarding school! An ultimate dream of mine. PrepWorks enabled me to gain the necessary skills and mindset. From entrance exam practice to mock interviews, their guidance teaches you to work on time management, score higher than average and gain important people skills. With the help of PrepWorks, I got into a world leading IB School."
"PrepWorks has helped me practice writing when I needed it. I often wrote too much and had problems with being consistent. However, PrepWorks introduced me to Ms Nazya. Ms Nazya guided me through some exercises and tasks which made my writing smoother and more effective. The classes were always fun and educational which I enjoyed. In the end, I am able to write better with the enjoyable learning experience."
"When I joined PrepWorks, I was struggling a bit with my Maths, confidence in my speaking and my overall English writing. But when I joined PrepWorks, the teachers helped me perfect my Maths, bringing me to stages up to Year 11 Maths, and helped me improve my English by a lot. They helped me get a lot of offers for English schools in the UK and managed to get me a few offers too.
Overall when I joined I was a bit careless in English and not putting my full potential into Maths, but PrepWorks helped me get better."
"The tutors in Prepworks are experienced and are able to challenge us to our limit. They help us have a deep understanding of topics that we learn. They really know what they are teaching exactly and we learn a lot in every lesson we attend. I always look forward to every lesson."
"I have been engaging tutoring services from Prepworks more than a year ago. Their tutors are really very experience and they consistently provide feedback to me on how my kids are doing in class. They also take keen interest on knowing how well the children are doing at school with this extra tutoring. The tutors are also able to accomodate any of the changes in my schedule and this is important. The tutors are able to engage my kids interest in the subject matter as well. I am very pleased and satisfied with Prepworks tutoring service."
"It has been a real pleasure studying with your teachers this past few months, it has been a very inspiring experience and I am very thankful for the tutoring your teachers have given me. In the time with your help I have improved greatly in my Maths academically and all the guidance your teachers have given me is a tremendous help to my success. The teaching quality is always high level and consistent, the teacher also shows a strong passion in the subject, which has also inspired me in my learning. Thank you!"
"I have really enjoyed Mr Loh's Maths classes. He makes my classes and Maths fun to study, so much so that Mathematics is now my favourite subject in school!
I guess if there were three words to describe Mr Loh, I would say he is super-brilliant, patient and funny!"
"Mr Loh has been teaching Warren Mathematics just over 5 months and already, I have seen much progress in Warren. Mr Loh speaks with such passion for the subject and delivers his classes in a structured way that engages my child, resulting in Warren understanding and mastering the topics. A believer in consistent hard work, Mr Loh always challenges Warren to take on extra, improving each time, knowing that there is more in the child."
“I would highly recommend Puan Anis to anyone who is looking for a dedicated and experience Malay language tutor for their child sitting for IGCSE exams!
My son started with Puan Anis with minimal knowledge and comprehension of the Malay language and within a period of 2.5 years, he has improved from a poor grading to an A* score for his IGCSE trial exams. This has tremendously boosted my son’s confidence when attempting for the actual papers recently. On top of that, I am very happy that my son is enjoying the language now, which to me is more rewarding than just achieving good grades!
Thank you, Puan Anis for making the Malay language fun, interesting and easy for Ethan!”
"What a difference PrepWorks has made in my life! The quality methodology of teaching and coaching every student who walks through PrepWorks Malaysia doors is hands down one of the best in standards. Before meeting my academic coach Nazya, my academic life was a struggle and I only seemed to think there was no way I was going to succeed. However, when I was introduced to PrepWorks I was amazed by the services they offer with the main goal of assisting me to achieve my academic goals and it all changed my life for the better. Through academic coaching I now have gained the confidence and finally see that coming to PrepWorks was the rightest decision I have made. I am now thriving and will continue to do my best to excel in my academic field all thanks to my coach and PrepWorks Malaysia."
"Ms Nazya gave me a clearer guidance on how to stay organised and spend my time wisely. I was taught about creative ideas to benefit me in the best ways and i could talk about my struggles in a comfortable environment."
"I want to thank Coach Andrew for helping me with my focus and the program itself as it helped me with online school work and my focus levels. I found it a beneficial course because Andrew gave me strategies to work around getting distracted while also explaining it in a way I can understand. Before I had this course my work ethics, in general, were deteriorating rapidly. Thankfully, when the first lesson came, I became more confident as I had almost an arsenal of tactics to help me improve. Now, after finishing the whole thing, my grades are steadily improving again."
"Really great! I have never seen Ghazali so excited to join a class before. The teachers and classes are just amazing. The teachers made the classes interesting, interactive and easy to understand. Not forgetting that Ghazali had so much fun while learning. Ghazali has always been a shy boy and to see him talks and interact the way he did during the classes were absolutely joy to me. I can't speak highly enough of this PrepWorks."
"I love PrepWorks classes because it is fun and I get to draw a lot. Also, I get to learn a lot of new things!"
"I love my PrepWorks classes because the teachers are fun and nice. They teach us by games. I like that they spend a few days on one topic so I can understand it better. We also get to discuss our work because there are only a few students in my class compared to my old school. I feel less shy to share my ideas."
"I like online school because I get to be with my family at home. My teachers are kind and fun and they always teach me cool things I didn’t know before. I used to hate going to school but I love my PrepWorks classes because I have so much fun talking with my teachers. I get to ask my teachers many questions and they always answer me kindly."
"I find PrepWorks interesting. A lot of teachers helped me with my studies. And so now I can understand how to do my work in school."
"I like PrepWorks Academy because it is fun and I can make lots of new friends. We learn interesting things that we never known before. The teachers are always helping me to improve the subject that I have difficulties with. Teachers also make the lesson enjoyable every time. They are always supportive and they are not angry if I make a mistake. They also help me understand the question and in answering them. I like that the teachers are kind and sweet. I like the afternoon session, so I can play and do whatever I want in the morning. Plus, there is only a few homework at the end of the day."
"We are the parents that believe education and learning do not necessarily come from the school environment. Here in PrepWorks, we do not worry if she is missing anything academically because at PrepWorks, the tutor is a facilitator that makes the lesson interesting and provides chances for the children to really participate in their learning process and acquire the knowledge. From our observation, the tutors are also great in redirecting the children especially when they get too excited on certain topics. Azra is keener in learning compared to before."“The Art of Teaching is the Art of Assisting Discovery”. – Mark Van Dorren
"I enjoy PrepWorks so much because it is like my second family. Sometimes we work together and have lots of fun. My lessons are very interesting and challenging. Teacher Nadia is a great Maths teacher. Teacher Lavanya, Teacher Sarah, Teacher Nadia and Teacher Hazim are all my favourite teachers. They have given me so much knowledge and confidence to complete all my school tasks."
"I stumbled upon PrepWorks by chance in December whilst looking for an online school for my son, Ryan. Enrolling Ryan into PrepWorks has been the best decision by far, and I can see major improvements in his studies. It is an amazing platform for children to build their confidence, think critically and improve their core subject knowledge.
The Academy is also very structured and has assessments every few weeks, with a full report provided at the end of a term. His teachers, Ms Lavanya, Ms Nadia and Mr Hazim, have been instrumental in giving him confidence and knowledge. I would like to thank them for their amazing and interactive lessons online."
"I like PrepWorks because the teachers are very nice and they help you in all your mistakes and problems."
"Despite being online, PrepWorks has hit on a promising recipe for online learning that keeps young children engaged and learning. My child has really enjoyed how interactive the sessions are, as well as the encouraging and positive learning environment that PrepWorks tutors cultivate in their online classes."
"I love PrepWorks because it's very fun, joyful and exciting. I learn a lot from the great teachers and I LOVE IT. I love Teacher Nadia, Teacher Lavanya, Teacher Muhammad, Teacher Melody and all those teachers teach me great stuff, and I enjoy it a lot. I also have met a lot of new friends at PrepWorks Academy."
"Transitioning to online school was not an easy task at the beginning of the pandemic. However, PrepWorks Academy was prepared with materials and great teachers to help onboard students online easily, and created a happy environment for the children to learn from. The teachers are very knowledgeable, dynamic, caring, patient and kind to the students. PrepWorks Academy offers the Cambridge syllabus which is what we were looking for to accommodate my son’s learning requirements. Overall, I would highly recommend for students to sign up to PrepWorks as they have enriched my son’s learning experience."
"I love PrepWorks classes because it is so fun and interactive and we can do a lot of teamwork activities. Also, I get to learn a lot of new things and the teachers there are so nice that they let us discuss our answers and are very patient when we get wrong answers. And lastly, I love it that I could also meet many friends especially during the current pandemic situation."
"What we like about PrepWorks:
We really recommend PrepWorks Academy as we have 5 students signing in to PrepWorks classes from Phnom Penh, Cambodia every week."
"I am glad Sandy was able to learn at PrepWorks. She always enjoys the classes every time. She said, "Every student is happy there." I think this is very important!"
"Travis thoroughly enjoys his classes at PrepWorks and looks forward to it daily! Great teachers who are very dedicated and are fantastic with children! Love the way classes are run, which encourage them to participate and speak their mind."
"I have attended the PrepWorks classes and I really enjoy them.
They are informative and we talk about current affairs. Some things I have learnt are using long and short sentences, Anne Frank, and even the mysterious North Korea supreme leader.
I would definitely recommend the classes to everyone."
"It was a good time and everyday when I woke up I was looking forward to the classes."
"I think it was really helpful and also really fun to join."
"The workshop was really fun and we learned about all sorts of interesting things like Ancient Egypt, the brain, UFOs and much more."
"I think the event was extremely helpful and increased my understanding of different issues throughout the world. It was an enjoyable experience and I was able to engage with the class and state my ideas easily."
"PrepWorks has features such as friendly staff and amazing education techniques. The teachers there are very experienced and they are also very caring for our needs. I can see why PrepWorks is a popular choice for most parents and it is only through PrepWorks that I managed to come this far in writing.
Before I went to PrepWorks I did not know how to write a good persuasive argument, input my feelings and describe my surroundings using my five senses. Now that I have experienced PrepWorks, I am very confident in my writing skills. I am astonished by the amount of hard work and generosity the teachers have put into my education. I would like to thank teacher Nazya in particular as she was the one who guided me through the concepts of writing."
"The workshop was just fabulous as it was the best one I ever attended. The Zoom meetings were organised very well and to join the meeting, it was very secured as you needed a code and a password to join the meeting. I learnt so much about writing. As a result of these sessions, I can now make my writing shorter and more descriptive."
